With the dawn of the Internet it seems that a growing number of businesses are taking advantage of this powerful new tool and looking to outsource their work abroad, this is something that previously was a privilege that only call centres were privy to.
There are a number of reasons why a company might try to out source their freelance graphic design work abroad. For example there is a good chance that by doing so they will get better value for their money, if an employer is looking for someone with a certain skill set, for instance IT skills, then they can often end up paying through the nose for it.
However if they were to source their work abroad to somewhere with a low cost economy such as India, then they would be able to reduce their costs quite significantly. This potential for financial savings has certain implications for smaller businesses, entrepreneurs, and individuals.
